Gemma Collins has revealed she gained 4lbs after eating whole loaves of bread and butter in lockdown.

Speaking to The Sun Gemma said: ‘I went through a whole tiger bread loaf with butter to cheer myself up.

‘Everyone in lockdown turned to food and I certainly did in the first few weeks.

‘I probably gained about four pounds, it was nothing major but I have certainly taken it off since then and I’ve lost about three stone in weight.’

She added: ‘It’s been a great amount of weight to lose but I’ve still got a bit of a way to go if I’m being honest. I still want to lose another two or three stone.’

Earlier this year, the reality star revealed she had shed three stone after using her time in lockdown to focus on her health and preparing nutritionally balanced meals. 

However when lockdown restrictions eased Gemma went back to using Skinny Jabs to curb her appetite as she dined at various restaurants.  

Back in September 2019, Gemma admitted that she would be using £250 SkinnyJab injections to kick start her diet. 

The TOWIE star shared a post on her Instagram page in April hailing how the weight loss jabs had been so beneficial in her weight-loss mission. But she has since been criticised for not making clear the post was an ad.

SkinnyJab was criticised by The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) for wrongly promoting prescription-only medicines used to treat diabetic and obese patients. 

The company was also criticised for making weight loss claims that were ‘not compatible with good medical and nutritional practice’.

The Instagram posts, which were promoted by a string of models and other celebrities alongside Gemma, claimed the drugs would ‘suppress appetite’ and help users lose up to a stone in two weeks.

Gemma has said that she wanted to lose weight to help her chances of conceiving, explaining in July: ‘I’ve got a fabulous doctor. I can definitely have a child, he just told me it would be easier when I’m not carrying as much weight.

‘He gave me the confidence not to panic about it. He told me to lose a few stone and it will help me.’ 

Following the ASA ruling, Jane Smith, CEO of the charity Anorexia & Bulimia Care, told The Telegraph: ‘Inappropriate social media promotion can influence destructive eating disorder behaviours such as extreme food restriction, over-exercising, or the abuse of diet pills or laxatives.’
